Photos from the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival

It was a beautiful weekend for the Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck and throngs of fiber enthusiasts turned out for plenty of sun, a good wind for falling leaves, and of course, sheep, llamas, alpacas, herding dogs, and tempting fleeces, yarns, patterns, and baskets to be had at every turn.
